How do you feel about the LA Rams chances this season? The team has navigated the shopping spree of the 2024 NFL Free Agency market, as well as onboarded 26 new rookies: 10 selections from the 2024 NFL Draft and 16 undrafted collegiate free agents. For now, the team's roster is bursting with talent, enthusiasm, and energy. By many familiar analysts and observers, this team is already far ahead of where they were just one year ago.

But to those who are less familiar with the team, the highlights of this team are the fact that All-Pro DL Aaron Donald retired, the veteran leaders on the team got a year older, and the team is due for some hardship. But that pessimistic perspective may be missing the mark by a wide margin. If you don't want to take my word for it, simply consider the opinion of LA Rams HC Sean McVay.

Just one year ago, Coach McVay was wrestling with the decision to step away from the game on either a temporary or a permanent basis. This year, he is all smiles, calm cool, and collected, and he is singing the praises of his young team and the energy that they are already putting on display throughout OTAs and mandatory minicamp:

"It has been a great offseason"

Now how about some details, right?

The Rams young roster is all about getting better each day, and that is the message that has been ground into their eager mindsets. Rookies and second-year players dominate this team, and the reports out of the Rams offseason is filled with positive reports that confirm and even expand expectations over what they bring to the team for the upcoming season.

The Rams somehow managed to refurbish their airship mid flight. This is a team that has restocked the roster with a ton of new faces, not just to the team, but to the NFL as well. And with each success story on this roster, the competitive nature of everyone on the team elevates their focus and performance as well.

I really am excited over the job the personnel department and draft scouts have done in the past two drafts. The Rams created urgent needs for players who not only could start at the NFL level, but for starters who could excel at that level. So far, the 2023 rookie class has been excellent. Will 2024 follow suit?

Okay, who can we tout from the coaches comments now?
